    What happened to him? The only thing taken away from him was the ball when he threw it to the defender in the end zone. Not knocking Trask, I think he did rather well all things considered, but this is just melodramatic nonsense.

    Sure you do, since you have the benefit of hindsight.

    I’ve never played football and know nothing about playcalling. Does anyone have any insight into why our coaches insisted on trying to run up the middle when it wasn’t working? What am I missing (srs)?

    Zuniga and Greenard being out definitely hurt. I too questioned the Jones drive.

    Sometimes you just get beat.

    Last week, freshman QB in Swamp—advantage Gators

    This week, senior QB in Death Valley—advantage Kitties

    Just checked. Trasky was 23/39 3 TD 1 interception and 310 yards. with a 7.9 yard average. (Burrow had a 12+ yard average.)

    Good enough to beat pretty much anyone. Except it just wasn't meant to be tonight.

    Go Gators.

    fredsandford said it right. I agree. Hey, great atmosphere, great game. Ton's of Gator exposure this year. Two Game day appearances. Listen, it's all good.
    This...

    Go Gators.

    Not asking for fairy dust. Just something different (See blitzing above).
    But I believe LSU only punted twice. They scored 42 points.
    Even if UF got burned on a blitz package I'd be ok with that. Why?
    Because LSU was scoring just about every time they had the ball anyway.
    And it wasn't taking much time or that many plays. We didn't stop them.
    No pressure No turnovers. UF was leading the nation in turnovers.
    Sometimes you have to create them. And I'm not making millions unfortunately.
    But I'd like a shot if I could find a way into the coaching circus network

    As well and as sound as we played last week on defense, I’m really not sure what the game plan was tonight.
    Where Vegas set the line, you’d almost think they knew about the injuries.

    Did Greenard get hurt on the last play of the game? I remember someone from the Gators getting hurt on the last play last week.

    We played LSU a little differently than anyone else we’ve played. Linebackers assuming play action, minimal blitzing, moving Elam to the outside and putting Marco at nickel in place of Dean, etc. Greenard and Zu being out destroyed our pass rush.

    Being taken out of the game on the most crucial drive. Being taken out while driving us down the field for one play, only to be rushed back in right before the INT. Only getting to throw the ball once with 1st and goal on the final possession.

    He lead us all game long, and was undermined when it mattered the most. Just feel gutted for the kid is all. This should have been his moment.

    I thought LSU played dirty. And got away with it.

    That is where it appears the coaches took on too much. The idea is to take what they are giving and the running game took too long to bring in the option etc. I am still scratching my head over bringing EJj in but more so the plays he was given.

    How do you pressure a team that is gashing you on the run and almost never in pressure situations?

    LSU went deep ONE time. Everything else was a quick pass or a run and they killed us on both.

    The problem wasn't a lack of pressure; the problem was we couldn't stop the simple stuff to even get to the point where we could pressure.
